Not Your Ordinary Golf Trophies

Unusual and Unorthodox Golf Trophies

By

The Claret Jug, the Wanamaker Trophy, the Ryder Cup - these are some of the most famous trophies in golf. And also some of the most traditional. But although golf is a game steeped in tradition, the trophies awarded don't always conform to the norm. Some golf trophies are unusual, unorthodox - a few are even downright ugly. Those are the trophies we feature here - the ones that are different, out of the ordinary.

And we poke a little fun at a few of them - even though all trophies are really beautiful because they signify a job well done. Sometimes that beauty, however, is in the eye of the beholder.

Each trophy featured in this gallery also comes with a "hot or not" poll attached - you can vote on whether the pictured trophy is cool or goofy, beautiful or ugly, hot or not. Thumbs up or thumbs down - make your call on each of these golf trophies.

When you're finished here, return to our Golf Pictures index for more galleries.
